George Hansen --- Calumet County Reporter --- August 1917

Tuesday afternoon, our citizens were greatly shocked to learn that George Hansen who was living with his sister, Mrs. George Schildhauer in a fit of despondency had ended his life by drinking a dose of carbolic acid. Mr. Hansen had been an invalid for years, in fact, he had never been in perfect health since his early childhood. Other troubles were added to his burdens lately and so, despairing of it all, he decided to end it all and at once.
George Hansen was born on the old Hansen farm in Charlestown, April 14, 1865. Here he grew to young manhood, assisting his parents in taking care of the work of the farm. As has been stated, he was never in perfect health, but he was always willing to do his share of the work to the best of his strength and ability.
November 14, 1891 he was married to Lina Schildhauer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Schildhauer. The couple took up farming on the old Herman Peters' farm and continued in that occupation, in spite of Mr. Hansen continued invalidism, until five years ago, when they moved to Kiel. An operation at the Mayo Brothers' hospital, Rochester, Minnesota, some time ago, seemed to bring some relief to the suffering man, at least for a time. But family troubles came which resulted in the legal separation from his wife some weeks ago. This seems to, added to his long sickness, brought on a deep melancholy, and in a fit of despondency, he decided to unburden himself of it all.
The deceased is survived by his widow, one son, Edward, and one daughter, Elsie, also by three sisters; Mrs. Henry Greve and Mrs. George Schildhauer of this village, and Mrs. Ernest Hagemann, of Hamilton, Montana, and two brothers, Charles and August of this village. His parents and one brother, Peter, preceded him in death.
Funeral services were held this Friday afternoon, at New Holstein cemetery.
